  1. Ian Watson at Bundaberg airport. I just bought a plane and he did the inspection on it at a very reasonable price.
  2. Condolences to family and friends - RIP Lots of off topic here - inappropriate! A new thread should have been opened to discuss rules and regs!
  3. What difference does that make? I'm a great Grand Father who absolutely loves his GK's and GGK's - does that mean I could go around the world in a jumbo with noisy uncontrolled brats sitting beside me! Going down to Brissy in the train is bad enough! He's quite justified complaining - I'd be asking to be moved! Just because your in an aeroplane doesn't mean you have to put up with any type of nuisance!
  4. Free? I always thought that we paid for it as part of our membership .....
  5. Jeez (not bad spot to be with your head in the clouds lol) - didnt even look at the date ...... just looked at the planes and as Mick would have only had the Sports Star for maybe 3-4 years thought it was more recent ...... I'm at Gladstone and am paying $50 a week which is soon to end as the owner has sold and the new owner need all the space. So I'd be happy to re-hangar the old girl in Bundy for $55 at least till the end of the wet by that time I should have my own.
  6. If you can afford those aeroplanes you can afford $55 a week mate - and if it was your hangar how much would you be charging .... you wouldn't be giving it away would you!
  7. From what I have read most of the time the U-Boat let go the cable when an enemy aircraft or vessel was sighted and dived ...... bugger the pilot!
  8. Sincerest condolences to family and friends.
  9. All that needs to be said until actual facts come to light is " Condolences to the family and friends of the pilot"
  10. After reading three pages and not finding out anything at all about this accident .... anyone got any "facts" at all concerning this accident?
  11. Correct it was fitted with a VIP in flight adjustable prop and yes it was therefore registered E24. The aircraft did not exhibit the E ahead of the rego numbers.
  12. Firstly my condolences to the family and friends of the late pilot. Another tragedy! To stop any speculation: The plane was a Lightwing Speed-2000 reg 24-5183 The aircraft had been hangared at Tumut and was recently sold.

    SP2000

    Thx Doug - yes I agree. The GR is a great aeroplane for sure. It's surprising but I don't know anyone that's seen or flown one either! The SP2000 looks like it would be a nice cruising aeroplane. They appear to be very strong and well built also. As far as performance info goes. they probably rate similar to the J230 - got lots of room but lack a little performance getting out of shorter strips fully loaded - 600m-700m and also a little slower in the cruise of course. I intend to venture down to Ballina this week for an inspection.

    SP2000

    OK, looks like I'm outta luck trying to gather any information other than the builders specs ......... thx apm, looks like we're the only two that's even heard of sp2000 - not even any off topic here, that'll be a first lol!
